Riding on a wave of success the Chilean president had been warmly welcomed in London, where he admitted that his country was content with publicity created by the successful miners' rescue mission.

"Chilean people feel very proud. We are happy to finally get some recognition around the world. Had we known that this was the best way, we would have trapped those men underground a long time ago. Now that we know that, we will send another 30 men in November and 30 more will join them underground in December. We have already planned their Christmas dinner," said the president Sebastian Piñera.

Piñera, who is set to meet the British Prime Minister and the Queen, joked that he thought he would meet members of the band Queen. He then added, "Actually I was not joking. I really would prefer to meet the band."

Rescued miners reached the celebrity status in Chile and around the globe. Some have been even invited by football powerhouses Real Madrid and Manchaster United to watch their games.

On of the invited miners, a Barcelona fan, turned down the invitation and came back underground until his team reaches the top of the table. Another one, a Liverpool fan, received an invitation to the Kop, but decided to stay underground saying that due to the team's poor performances he was too embarassed to publicly show his face.
