Cave divers in Thailand are poised to restart the high-risk operation to extract the remaining eight boys and their football coach from a vast flooded cave system.

Four boys were brought safely out of the cave on Sunday.



But the mission was paused overnight for air tanks to be replaced.

The boys became trapped in the cave on 23 June after heavy rains caused flooding, but were found alive last week by divers.

Rescuers decided to go ahead with the hazardous operation to free them because of fears that waters would rise again.

Activity at the dive site early on Monday suggests that the operation may have resumed or be about to resume. But there has been no confirmation.

At least seven ambulances have driven towards the cave entrance.

Who are the boys and their coach?

  • Chanin Vibulrungruang, 11 (Nickname: Titan) – started playing football aged seven

  • Panumas Sangdee, 13 (Nickname: Mig), wrote to his parents: “The Navy Seals are taking good care of me”

  • Duganpet Promtep, 13 (Nickname: Dom) – captain of the Wild Boars, reportedly scouted by several Thai professional clubs

  • Somepong Jaiwong, 13 (nickname: Pong) – reportedly dreams of playing for the Thai national team

  • Mongkol Booneiam, 13 (nickname: Mark) – described by his teacher as a “very respectful and good child”

  • Nattawut Takamrong, 14 (nickname: Tern) – told his parents not to worry about him

  • Ekarat Wongsukchan, 14 (nickname: Bew) – promised his mother he would help her at the shop once he was rescued

  • Adul Sam-on, 14 – member of a volleyball team that came second in a North Thailand-wide tournament

  • Prajak Sutham, 15 (nickname: Note) – described by family friends as a “smart, quiet guy”

  • Pipat Pho, 15 (nickname: Nick) – wrote in his letter he wanted his parents to take him for barbecued food once rescued

  • Pornchai Kamluang, 16 (nickname: Tee) – told his parents “don’t worry, I’m very happy”

  • Peerapat Sompiangjai, 17 (nickname: Night) – it was his birthday the day the boys went missing, and his parents have told him they are still waiting to hold his birthday party

  • Assistant coach Ekapol Chantawong (nickname Ake), 25 – apologised in his letter to the parents, but they replied that they did not blame him

How did the group get there?

The boys were found inside the cave by British rescue divers a week ago, about 4km (2.5 miles) from the cave mouth.

Aged between 11 and 17, they belong to a football club called the Wild Boars, and became trapped during an excursion with their coach.

Top Brazilian actress, Bruna Marquezine has confirmed that she and Neymar have ended their relationship.

Marquezine didn’t go into details about the break-up when she spoke about it at a Gala event in Brazil on Thursday.

She said the relationship ending was bossed by Neymar adding that there is still “a lot of love” between both of them.



“It was a decision that came from him, but there is a lot of respect, a lot of love, for him and for everything that we have lived for,” she said in an interview. “You know I do not usually talk about my personal life. I’ll talk about it because I have to talk, but it will only be once.”

Reports had claimed that the famous pair were at odds over politics in their native country, where the country is in the midst of a heavily polarised presidential election.

But Marquezine was quick to clear up that point so as not to stoke anger in what she called a “very critical moment” for her country.

“I want it to be clear that it would not be for that,” she said. “It was a decision of him, but there is a lot of love and respect, it’s all right.”

The pair had been spotted together earlier in the month at Disneyland and have been dating off and on since 2012.

Chelsea vs Man United: Mourinho promises decency at Stamford return

Published

on

Jose Mourinho insists he will be on his best behaviour on his return to Stamford Bridge, but hopes his Manchester United side inflict Chelsea’s first defeat of the season on Saturday.



The Portuguese won three Premier League titles in two successful spells in charge of Chelsea, but has lost all three of his previous visits to Stamford Bridge as United manager without even scoring a goal.

And while Mourinho claimed that the fixture is now just like any other as far as he is concerned, he also conceded that he would not celebrate should United break that run to ease the mounting pressure on their manager.

“For me, it is another game,” said Mourinho. “Would I celebrate like crazy my team’s goal at Stamford Bridge or my team’s victory at Stamford Bridge? I don’t think so.

“I think I would try to control myself and to respect the stadium and the supporters that were my supporters and stadium for many years.”

“I want to do well for my team, players, support. I am 100 percent Manchester United tomorrow – no more space for anything other than respect for the stadium and the fans,” added Mourinho.

Mourinho’s promise to control his emotions comes at the end of a week in which he has been charged by the FA following comments he made towards a TV camera after his team’s dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle before the international break.

It is understood the United manager used “abusive, insulting or improper language” in his native tongue.

Even though Mourinho was never in danger of being suspended for the visit to his old club, United have requested an extension for his official response and the FA have duly allowed him until Wednesday to do so.

When asked whether he felt he was being victimised by the governing body, Mourinho insinuated he is more harshly treated than other managers.

“If I answer to your question I probably have another process because I cannot imply bias, so my answer is no answer,” he said.
