But someone on the platform decided to poke fun by rapidly superimposing surveillance images of former Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Gina Coladangelo’s recent steamy tryst - a scandal which resulted in Hancock quitting after a newspaper published it.
On Friday, a CCTV recording was released that showed Hancock embracing Coladangelo for a passionate smooch which made the internet buzz. Pressure for Hancock to resign over the situation ensued.
Johnson also apologized to the public for letting them down after The Sun first reported that Hancock was having an affair.
Despite calling Hancock ‘hopeless’ via text messages to Dominic Cummings, Johnson was apparently was reluctant to accept Hancock’s resignation, saying, “You [Hancock] should be immensely proud of your service. I am grateful for your support and believe that your contribution to public service is far from over.”
