The second miner to be rescued from the San Jose mine in Chile, Mario Sepulveda, handed out rocks to his rescuers from the underground chamber where he has spent 69 days.

The first, Florencio Avalos, reached the surface to cheers at 0010 local time (0310 GMT), after being winched up a 624m (2,047ft) shaft in a capsule.
