Jubilation in Chile as Luis Urzua, the man who led his men down a Chilean mine seventy days ago, was the last miner to be rescued in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The rescue team is basking in the glory of a near flawless rescue operation that has saved the lives of thirty three miners and brought new respect for Chile.

The miners are now recuperating at a hospital in Copiapo.
