  Mateo: The resignation seems a bit premature but White is lost. First, he cannot avoid the Rook exchange. Then, in the Bishop ending, the point is to tie the White King to the defence of a pawn on the King side. If White plays h3, Black has to play g4 to have g3 as a target. Otherwise, Black plays g4 and h2 will be a target. In both patterns, the White King will have to stay on the King side, because the Black Bishop can attack g3 or h2 and the White Bishop has to keep an eye on a2. Then Black brings his King to b2. Quod demonstrandum erat.
