Call it Leotardgate. Thanks to a camera hidden in the ceiling of a private health club, Princess Diana was depicted yesterday pumping iron on the front page of a national tabloid newspaper - a publishing decision that has sparked fresh cries for a government crackdown on invasions of privacy by the rambunctious British press.
