    Social media users have been voicing their approval over the health secretary resigning while also slamming Hancock for his actions during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock's resignation has sent shockwaves across social media, with scores of netizens voicing their thoughts on the matter. 

    Married father of three Hancock tendered his resignation shortly after The Sun released footage of him embracing and kissing his aide Gina Coladangelo – who is also married and has three kids. The video was apparently recorded around two weeks before hugging between households was officially allowed under the relaxation of COVID rules in the UK.

    It seems many are pleased he's stepped down. 

    Hancock has been under fire for some time for a number of reasons, long before he was busted for the affair. 

    Some joked about the circumstances of Hancock's resignation.

    And there were also those who made tongue-in-cheek predictions about who may replace Hancock as health secretary.
