Aussie doctor and diver Richard Harris has been hailed a hero as he finally left the cave system where he was caring for the soccer team.
Dr Harris is believed to have been the last person to come out of the cave, and his incredible efforts drew special praise from the leader of the rescue mission, acting Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotanakorn.

“(The Australians) have been a big help, especially the doctor,” Osotanakorn told 9NEWS reporter Ben Avery.
