Bangkok, Thailand (CNN)The 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach and the rescuers who helped extract them from a cave this summer were honored by Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha in a lavish ceremony Thursday.

The boys, members of a youth soccer team called the Wild Boars, and their coach spent nearly three weeks underground before an international team of divers and cave experts rescued them from the cave in July.
They were also reintroduced to many divers for the first time since they were all inside the cave.
The event, called "Tham Luang Incredible Mission: the Global Agenda," featured a fake small cave tunnel that the boys briefly walked through, surrounded by cameras.
    Members of the Wild Boars again spoke to the media about their ordeal,
