Miss Spain Mireia Lalaguna Royo was crowned Miss World 2015 a day before the shocking Miss Universe 2015 finale.

Royo was handed the crown by last year's winner Rolene Strauss of South Africa, according to the official website of Miss World.

The victory of the 23-year-old pharmacy student from Barcelona marked the first-ever win for a Spanish Miss World contestant, Channel24 reported.

Rovo beat 113 global contestants to take home the Miss World title this year.

Miss Russia, Sofia Nikitchuk, was named first runner up while Miss Indonesia, Maria Harfanti, was second runner up at the three-hour long finale, held at the Beauty Crown Grand Tree Hotel in Sanya, China.

Royo comes from Barcelona and is currently studying pharmacy with the aim of setting up a business in nutrition.

A skilled pianist, she can play the piano but in her spare time Royo likes to run, to read and to go skiing in the winter.

The newly crowned Miss World traditionally spends her winning year based in London and travelling the world representing the Miss World Organisation and its associated
causes and charities.

However, the ceremony was not without controversy as last month, the officials in Hong Kong stopped Miss Canada, Chinese-born Anastasia Lin, from boarding a plane bound for Sanya, refusing her a visa. 

The first Miss World contest was held 64 years ago in Britain.
