Expert Answer:

The heat in the sunlight is due to the Infrared radiations contained in the sunlight. 
The sunlight consist of a spectrum of radiations at different wavelengths. These include the visible radiations, the infrared radiations and the ultraviolet radiations. The infrared (wavelength range :700 nm to 106 nm) part of the spectrum is mainly responsible for heating up the things it comes in contact with.
