You need to either have the admin close it or have them add a “cancel” transition to the ‘closed’ status. It should also include a post function the set the Resolution to ‘cancelled’ or similar value.

can you please show the steps how admin close it?

The admin could create a temporary transition or a transition that is restricted to them or a small group. Often an Approval workflow will include a “bypass” transition that allows the admin to skip the approval for various reasons/conditions. If you have a condition where sometimes approvals are not required then the admin should build the WF to accommodate this scenario.

A transition from Pending Approval to another stautus should be included. But even now, at least the Project Lead or a Component Lead should be able to handle it and of course also a global Admin. If this isn't the case, the workflow is not well designed.
