Less than 24 hours after David Davis resigned as Brexit Secretary, Boris Johnson has stepped down as Foreign Secretary – a position he held for two years.

Johnson’s antics in recent years (even prior to his appointment as Foreign Secretary) have often resulted in a great deal of ridicule on social media, and Twitter users were unlikely to let his resignation slip by unnoticed.

Despite a tiring day of making fun of David Davis and keeping up the momentum of World Cup jokes, Twitter was flooded with jibes at Johnson within minutes of the announcement – here are some of the funniest.

There’s a theory going round that that, rather than just call in sick to work, Johnson has resigned purely to watch England in the World Cup in peace

And we’re pretty sure David Davis was in on the plan

There may also be some Love Island-related rumours floating around

It’s safe to say that some of us won’t miss him

And, actually, Boris simply resigning from his job isn’t enough for everyone

But let’s not forget all the great things Johnson has done for the country

Theresa May and the rest of the government are going to miss him, we’re sure

But there’s really only one man whose resignation England won’t accept today

As football mad as the world is right now, some sports presenters are taking the metaphors to the extreme

And some England fans might be reading into things a little too much

Of course, it’s all fun and games now, but just think which job could Boris end up doing next
