In a letter to the prime minister, he said: “I want to reiterate my apology for breaking the guidance and apologise to my family and loved ones for putting them through this.
“I also need be with my children at this time.
“We owe it to people who have sacrificed so much in this pandemic to be honest when we have let them down as I have done by breaching the guidance.”
His resignation came after there were calls for him to be sacked following the footage emerging.
At the time, Mr Johnson accepted Hancock’s apology for breaking social distancing rules and considered “the matter closed”.
