Eleven shots clear at one stage after making seven birdies in her first 10 holes, Kyriacou won from South Korea's Ayean Cho (70) with Sweden's Linnea Strom (66) a further shot back.

The tournament was co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour and also featured a contingent of Americans after their Asian swing was cancelled due to coronavirus.
