"One of them young Champs is proficient in 5 languages.
English, Thai, Burmese, Mandarine and Wa.
Adul Sam-on is his name,"

It was Adul, the stateless descendant of a Wa ethnic tribal branch once known for headhunting, who played a critical role in the rescue, acting as interpreter for the British divers.

FYI:
3 of the thai boys and the coach are not even Thai, but stateless from Myanmar
Perhaps the king will grant them citizenship rather than offer them flight to a football match

Thai news on tv seems to be reporting that the kids were sedated before being brought out?

It has also been reported by BBC and CNN since last week.

Sorry, I used the wrong term of speech. You know damn well what i mean. Wink. Trump is in trouble for exact same.

A USA film crew were on the scene 3 DAYS into the rescue operation. The cave is gonna become a massive tourist site. The movie will star A-List Hollywood actors. The focus of the movie will on the 2 British Cave Diving Champs.
