Friday's front pages have told the prime minister “leave means leave” and "thanked" him for Brexit after he resigned but indicated he will stay in No 10 throughout the summer.
Some reports suggests Tories will consider removing Boris Johnson sooner than he announced and installing a caretaker prime minister instead.
Others, however, appear content to keep Mr Johnson in place until his successor is elected internally by the Conservatives.
This mixed reaction has been reflected in Friday morning's papers, with some describing his downfall as inevitable and others bemoaning the Tories for turning on their leader.
Here's a look at how the front pages took shape on the morning after one of the most dramatic days in Westminster for a generation.
