In an emotional speech outside 10 Downing Street, Britain's David Cameron resigned as Prime Minister after the U.K. voted to leave the European Union.

"I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination," he said in a statement, promising to "steady the ship" over the coming months before stepping down in October.

Update: According to bookmaker Ladbrokes, former London mayor and leading Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson is the favorite to succeed Cameron.
