Rescuers may face a race against time to free the football team trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave before monsoon rains come this week
New video of the trapped boys has been published by the Thai Navy SEALs. In the video, the boys are wrapped in blankets, sitting with a diver and talk to the camera in Thai, greeting people waiting for them outside the cave.
“Introduce yourselves to your fans,” they are told. One by one, identified by their nicknames, they thank the rescuers.

There is due to be an announcement in 20 minutes by Narongsak Osottanakorn, governor of Chiang Rai province, who has been coordinating the rescue mission.
Given the uncertainty surrounding whether a rescue dive will be attempted, or if they boys will be left in the cave to wait out end of the monsoon season – potentially another four months – hopefully this announcement will give some clarity about the rescue team’s plans.
