Every report from the ground says that while work continues without pause, they are all incredibly relieved to have found the boys.
Provincial governor Narongsak Osatanakorn said they had been found safe but "the operation isn't over".
Efforts to rescue the 13 have captivated Thailand.
"If the doctors say their physical condition is strong enough to be moved, they will take them out from the cave", he said.
- Their 25-year-old assistant coach, Ekkapol Janthawong, is known to have occasionally taken them out on day trips - including a trip to the same cave two years ago. "You have been here - 10 days".
When a Thai military official announced the rescue at a base camp near the mouth of the cave, loud cheers went up from the searchers, who had been praying and working feverishly for such an outcome.
Thailand's prime minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has thanked the global experts who assisted in the search.
Despite the peril ahead, families and friends, some of whom have maintained a constant vigil outside the cave, hugged each other and cheered at the news.
Hundreds of soldiers (above), groups and volunteers laboured for a week to supply the forward teams of Royal Thai Navy and foreign divers and cave-exploring experts to finally reach the trapped boys and their coach on Monday.

Over 1000 people have been involved in the effort to save the children, with teams from countries all over Asia, plus the U.S., Australia and the UK.
