Chile's President Pinera has passionately praised miners and rescuers at the San Jose shaft, after the last trapped man was rescued.

He said Luis Urzua - the shift supervisor credited with helping his colleagues survive the first 17 days before rescue teams made contact - "made us proud".

The permanent faith shown by the families "moved mountains", he said.
