Sigma bonds refer to single bonds. Pi bonds are double, but it can be triple bonds too. A double bond contains one sigma bond and one pi bond. A triple bond contains one sigma bomd and two pi bonds.

A double bond is always comprised of one sigma bond and one pi bond. Sigma bonds are single bonds, and one of the other multiple bonds in higher order bonds.

A Sigma bond is present in all single, double, and triple bonds.
Double and triple bonds are distinguished because they contain pi bonds.

Sigma bonds refer to one single bond. In a double bond you can think of the first bond as being a sigma bond and the rest of the bonds being pi bonds. So a double bond will have one sigma bond and one pi bond and a triple bond will have one sigma bond and two pi bonds.
