Lights not displayed on Sprite

I have a scene that contains 3 elements:

  • Main Camera
  • A 2D Sprite that renders a single white pixel image, scaled to 2000 x 1000
  • A point light with a yellow color

What should be done so that the light is actually rendered on the sprite?

I have recorded a short video showcasing the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2iZB6BXhPs
