Most members of the Thai youth football team rescued from a flooded cave are having their heads shaved as they are ordained as novices in a Buddhist ceremony.
 
Their coach is also receiving monk's orders.
 
One of the boys is not joining the ceremony as he is a Christian.
 
The group will spend nine days living in a monastery, a tradition for males in Thailand who experience adversity.
 
They were trapped for more than two weeks before a dramatic rescue.
 
The boys were all released from the hospital last week and are said to be in good health after their ordeal in the snaking caverns of the Tham Luang caves of northern Thailand.
 
This step is intended to be a "spiritual cleansing" for the group.
 
Thai officials said the boys start the process by having their heads shaved, before attending the robing ceremony tomorrow.
