Thai soccer team pay tribute to former Navy SEAL from hospital

Tribute The rescued Thai football team and their coach display image of late navy Seal Saman Kunan with their messages for him

Thailand cave diving hero Dr Richard Harris pictured with MEDSTAR Andrew Pearce, wife Fiona and West Australian diver Craig Challen after returning home on a RAAF C17.

In a new video released by Thai authorities, the boys appeared relaxed in their hospital beds.

"(There were ) some moments of significant fear, and then a great result, and some really joyous moments to finish", he told media after arriving home on Saturday.

"This is clearly a time of grief for the Harris family, magnified by the physical and emotional demands of being part of this week's highly complex and ultimately successful rescue operation", Dr Pearce told the ABC. "I am just trying to get back to normal life as soon as possible".

Dr Harris and Mr Challen touched down with twenty Australians involved in the risky Tham Luang cave rescue.

She has also posted several touching Instagram messages to her husband.

Following someone else's line is very much easier than finding your own way. "We have to admire the coach that he managed well in this situation".

Privy Councillor Surayud Chulanond presided over the funeral that was attended by high-ranking officials, including Narongsak Osottanakorn, who helmed the Tham Luang cave rescue operation.

Harris has been described as a key part of the rescue but has been keen to highlight the role of others. Drilling teams attempted to get through almost a km of rock to the boy's location.

As the final Thai Navy SEAL emerged there was a "tsunami"-like surge after a pump failed".

When it seemed all other options were exhausted, the decision to swim the players out was made and the rescue went ahead.

"I understand that everyone is anxious and have good wishes for them", Dr. Chokedamrongsook said.

They already face the pressure of rising expectations.

The Australian team in Thailand also included Dr Harris's West Australian dive partner, six Australian Federal Police divers, a Navy clearance diver and members of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Crisis Rescue Team.

Officials at Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital said at a press conference early Saturday the boys are tentatively scheduled to be released on Thursday.

Chris Jewell, another British diver who travelled to Thailand with Mallinson to help, gave credit to the "brave" children who "showed no signs of panic" as he gently pushed them under the surface of the water in the cave system and guided them through the dark to safety. "It was a successful outcome and we played a part in an global effort".
