Jeremy Hunt has been appointed foreign secretary, replacing Boris Johnson following his resignation.

How are you feeling about community pharmacy's future now that Matt Hancock has replaced Jeremy Hunt as health secretary? Hunt, who backed the "remain" side in Britain's 2016 European Union membership referendum, favors keeping close economic ties to the bloc after the United Kingdom leaves next year.

Under party rules, 48 Tory MPs - 15% of the party's 316-strong representation in the Commons - must write to the chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, to trigger a no-confidence vote.

Following news of the cabinet split, former England global and 1986 World Cup Golden Boot victor Gary Lineker was among the first with a football jargon-laiden jibe comparing Johnson's resignation to a "transfer request".

Boris Johnson has quit as UK Foreign Secretary.

It comes hours after Johnson resigned, writing in an open letter to Prime Minister Theresa May that the "Brexit dream is dying", as he said negotiations were being "suffocated by needless self-doubt".

She added with a hint of irony: "In the two years since the referendum, we have had a spirited national debate, with robust views echoing around the cabinet table as they have on breakfast tables up and down the country".

Among Tory Brexiteers there was deepening anger at the proposals agreed at Friday's meeting of the Cabinet at Chequers which they branded as "Brexit in name only". Later, he told the BBC the United Kingdom was giving "too much away, too easily" in negotiations with the EU.
