I'm no expert but I think the problem is the size of the light source. The smaller the point of light then the sharper the flare spikes. In this case the light source, the sun, is relatively wide so the flare spikes will be as well. I'm not sure there's anything you can do about it. Hope that makes sense...
sort of, makes me wonder how they manage it on TV lol. because they look wonderful, admitedly a 16 "star"
