Uh that's not sunscreen, it's sweat. Once it's yellow though, you can try soaking it in bleach, but otherwise it's time to buy a new shirt.

I've had really good success with bayer aspirin. Just take two or three tablets and mash into a fine powder, mix with water to form a paste and rub on the yellow stains. Let sit for at least 1 hour or more, launder as usual. Amazingly the stains all lifted for me. Good luck. Helen

You might try soaking in Oxiclean. It does sometimes work when bleach will not. I had some blue stains from a garment bag once on a pink pant suit and this got them out when I thought it was ruined. Hope this is helpful.

Lestoil. Put some on the collar and scrub a bit with a toothbrush and wash.
