Resign or not?

 One of the issues with using online games as a source for research and study, is that sometimes come to an abrupt end. This is often due to connection issues, but unless you drill down into the source data (ie the extra tags that come with online games), you can never be quite sure it just wasn't an early resignation.

Here is one such game from the 2020 Online Olympiad. White is certainly better/winning after 13.Bg5, but did this move force a resignation, or was it just the last move before the internet dropped out?
