Many of the front page headlines feature Boris Johnson's warning in his resignation letter that the Brexit "dream is dying".

The Daily Express says he delivered a damning verdict, leaving the prime minister reeling.

The Daily Telegraph believes Mr Johnson plunged her leadership into crisis - and inflicted a brutal blow to her authority.

The Guardian sees the prospect of Tory MPs holding a vote of confidence as clearly real, but believes she has faced down the rebels - for now. The Daily Mail reports that Downing Street is braced for a leadership contest.

The Daily Mirror accuses Boris Johnson of declaring war on Mrs May, and tells how he is being tipped to launch a leadership bid.

But the website, Huffpost UK, is doubtful about his chances, saying his popularity has plunged among the public, Conservative members, and crucially among the party's MPs - meaning he lacks the support needed to get onto the ballot paper for a leadership contest.

The Times - which calls the former health secretary the great Conservative survivor - suggests that if he handles his new role dextrously he could find himself a contender for the top job.

The Times describes Ms Sturgess's death as an unconscionable act of murder - and says Russia must say what it knows.
