The tiny toughnuts of the Wild Boars football team have been filmed recovering in hospital, where they are expected to stay for a few more days after their legendary rescue from a flooded cave in Thailand.
Footage of the boys at the Chiang Rai hospital shows the boys donning surgical face masks, chilling out in bed, and occasionally throwing the peace sign at the camera.
Their chill little gestures understate the enormity of the rescue operation, which involved hundreds of support crew members, and very nearly ended in disaster.
Family members can also be seen waving at the boys through a window.

Those images come after Thai officials confirmed all 12 of the boys rescued from the Tham Luang cave, and their 25-year-old coach, are in relatively good knick despite their 17-day ordeal.
Overnight, the Chiang Rai Public Health Ministry’s inspector general Dr. Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong said all 13 of the rescued Wild Boars will be kept in quarantine for seven days, and will have their health monitored for a week afterwards.
Good job all around, tbh.Source: The Australian
