The behaviour of the magnetic field during the formation and evolution of the Sun is investigated. It is shown that an internal poloidal magnetic field of the order of 104 – 105 G near the core of the Sun may be compatible with differential rotation and with torsional waves, travelling along the magnetic field lines (Dudorov et al., 1989).
